Marches Makers Live
A Celebration of Makers and Making
28, 29 and 30 August 2021
Exhibition of Miniatures and a Programme of Demos, Workshops and Performance
The Marches Makers are pleased to announce that plans for the 2021 Festival are well underway.
Our centrepiece exhibition, held at the Kington Baptist Church, will feature an exquisite collection of miniature works in a variety of media by more than 65 local artists - available as an in-person experience and on-line.
A number of other Kington area galleries and venues will also offer exciting and thought-provoking exhibitions, including Made in the Marches Gallery, MIND's Art Space, Kington Art Society and an ECHO exhibition of original work by people living with disabilities in Herefordshire.
Our Celebration of Making will invite participation through workshops, demonstrations, an intimate puppetry performance by About Face Theatre Company, a collaborative community art project and much more.
For the 2021’s festival exhibition we are only inviting submissions for Miniature Artworks. We hope you'll agree that our artists have been game and risen to this size limited challenge!!
This year's festival showcases the artists and makers who were all ready to exhibit in the cancelled 2020 festival. Applications to exhibit will open again for the 2022 festival in a years time, so if you are interested in taking part please keep an eye on this website and follow us on Facebook and Instagram for details of when and how to apply.
